Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Security release. A one-byte overflow bug allows a carefully crafted
exploit to bring down your DNS server. It is highly unlikely that this
one byte overflow can lead to other (system) exploits.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.5
